“When the Resurrection is professed and proclaimed of Christ, the Cross is not forgotten but united with the Easter candle. The priest proclaims the truth of the Resurrection, saying: “Christ is risen!” while the Cross rises, but not cross alone, but with a candle that is the light of Paschal suffering transformed into victory. By the Resurrection, the Cross enlightens eternal love, life stronger than death.”
(Patriarch Daniel of Romania, 2013 Paschal message)
